#Manchester #climate nuggets March 11th 2013

Hi all,

The latest MCFly is now a week old.  “Fishwrap”, for you non-vegetarians…

The next post on MCFly is *extra-ordinary*, by the way (and no, we didn’t write it…)

Tonight’s third and final film in the “Climates of Hope, Climates of Despair” film series is “Mindwalk”.  It’s at 6pm, room E145 of the John Dalton Building of MMU (you get in via the entrance on Chester St).  All to be followed by conversations at a nearby pub (the Sandbar).  Details here.

Finally, you might consider signing this petition to get EDF to drop their chilling threat to sue 21 activists who occupied a (not-yet-in-use) power station last year.

Arwa Aburawa and Marc Hudson
